I am looking at brakeperformance.com and it you get the premium dimpled and slotted rotrs you get free semi-metallic brake pads. Is this a good way to go. This is the link to what I am looking at
http://brakeperformance.com/site/bra...v=051410&ad=dw

There have been many threads on here about brakes here is one, I will still stand by my previous statements. OEM not motorcraft not something at a local parts store.

I agree w/ Trip, though I've had excellent luck with the NAPA Severe Duty brake pads. They lasted 90k miles, w/ stock rotors & stop excellent. This is on my truck, that I tow regularly with.

Thanks guys I will probably just go over to ford and pic up some new pads. I wil have to get some pics of my one rotor when I get the wheels off again cause the one at the cooling fins looks like there has been some almost chipped off might be normal not sure. Thanks guys

Glad I found this thread. I have my '08 due for brakes (76,000 miles). The dealership wants $521 per axle to do the brakes, saying that the rotors need to be replaced. Is this true? I have always thought that you could get at least 2 or 3 pad changes before you had to replace rotors, any opinions?

$521??

WOW! You can replace everything yourself for half that much... Depends on the condition of the rotors, how the truck was used, and if the pad was worn down enough for the metal backer to eat into the rotor. Are they grooved?

O'reilly's Lifetime Rotors & Pads are excellent, if you have one around.

Best part is you just bring the old ones back and walk out with new ones...at no cost.

2K3 EXCURSION 7.3L 4x4 EDDIE BAUER 107K miles as of 06-13-07
AFE Stage II / 4" MBRP exhaust / DP-Tuner F5 (Stock, 60hp Tow, 80hp Econo, 120hp race & High Idle) / Quadzilla Commander/ATS Housing
Running homebrewed BioDiesel and custom SVO kit for 70k miles.:Thumbup:
Misc. Mods: ZooDad/By-Pass Oil Filter/203* T-Stat/Coolant Filter/HPX/CCV Reroute/Tranny Filter/Foil Delete/Stereo Stuff/ITP Reg Return/Non-EBPV Pedistal and Exhaust Housing/Adjustable Waste Gate Controller/


"If you love your motorcycle, set it free. If it comes back to you it was probably a high-side."

I'LL TRY TO KEEP UP, BUT THE EXCURSION IS A BIG GIRL AND BIG GIRLS DON'T LIKE TO MOVE FAST.

rotors / brakes

just replaced the rear rotors on 03 excursion with brake performance dimpled rotors / premium pads. Rotors are very well made and fit perfectly. Brake pads make no noise and stop the truck much quicker than stock with no brake dust. What more can you ask for in brakes/ rotors. the job cost $220 and took about 2 hours. The rotors have a lifetime warranty against cracking / warping. the hardest part was getting the wheels off as the back side of the wheels were rusted to the old rotors. Tim
